Strategic Insight reports are designed to support strategic objectives and planning by Integrated Care System leaders. Through the analysis of data and communication with key stakeholders across the ICS, interventions to be undertaken by the ICS are proposed to Integrated Care Boards or associated committees.

A combination of multiple datasets is required for the planning and prioritisation of services, and the allocation of funding in an Integrated Care System (ICS). This report highlights the limitations and challenges of combining primary and secondary care medicines datasets to understand medicines use across an ICS footprint.
